Permanent (Offshore) General Skilled Visas
Permanent Residence Visas applicants are required to meet the basic criteria and score the required pass marks in order to make an application under the General Skilled Migration Scheme. Upon grant, the permanent residence visa allows the applicants to live in Australia indefinitely and apply for Australian citizenship when they are eligible to do so.
The permanent visas are categorized as:
- Skilled Independent Visa
- Skilled Sponsored Visa
In case you are not eligible to apply for a permanent visa, you may be able to apply for a Provisional visa with a pathway to apply for a permanent residence visa later, after you have met the residence and employment criteria specified.
